ISN’s i3C (International Consortium of CKDu Collaborators) has initiated the Observatory on Chronic Kidney Disease of Unknown Origin (CKDu), a regularly updated list of human research studies in this area. This interactive map, developed within the context of ISN’s Collaboration Plan with the World Health Organisation, aims to facilitate collaboration among researchers and stakeholders involved in CKDu (also known as Mesoamerican nephropathy, or CKD in agricultural workers). Preliminary information about ongoing CKDu studies is available in a fact sheet
and a detailed map showing individual collaborations can be seen here
ISN members are in a unique position to contribute to this project through the following:
• Ensuring that if you are working in this research area, your CKDu research project is visible on the Observatory.
• Circulating the survey to obtain input from regional researchers active in CKDu to ensure that the Observatory is updated with your regional/national projects.
• Distributing the fact sheet to researchers and stakeholders in order to increase collaboration and information exchange.
Thank you for participating in the survey and sharing it with your colleagues:
